The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) on Friday moved the State Election Commission (SEC) demanding legal action against the State Government for allegedly violating the model code of conduct enforced for the July 1 Balangir and Titlagarh municipality elections by announcing hike in the retirement age of its employees from 58 years to 60 in public.
“Undoubtedly, the decision on the retirement age of Government employees is appreciable. But the way the Government announced it was not appropriate so far as the existing model code of conduct for the municipal elections and the ongoing session of the Assembly are concerned,” said PCCs Vice-President Sibananda Ray.
Submitting a memorandum to the SEC, the party demanded immediate legal action against the Government.
